Free Property Valuations 

When listing a property, you need to know how much the property is first and foremost. This is important because if you list the property for a price that’s too high, nobody will want to buy it. And if you list it for a price that’s too low, you’ll be leaving yourself thousands of pounds out of pocket while selling your home for a steal.

Our FREE property valuation service removes the guesswork and saves you the hassle of doing the research. We look at average property prices in your part of Dorset and consider your property’s type, size, age, condition, etc. If you’ve made improvements to your home, this will improve its value considerably.

Conversely, if the property is dilapidated, this could drag the price down below the average. Regardless, our team are experts at determining the precise value of each property. We’ll inform you of how much you could get for your Dorset home and recommend ways to boost this amount.

To request your FREE valuation, call Barry on 07711 633135 or Aidan on 07703 138497. You can also request a valuation by completing our online contact form on our website’s property valuation page.

What Do our Solicitors Do for You? 

Solicitors are a vital part of the buying and selling process. Solicitors that handle property sales, Dorset customers, are referred to as conveyancers, and they perform a variety of critical functions that save property owners hours of legwork.

These roles include:

  • Asking questions, such as what fixtures and fittings are present and whether there have been any disputes over boundaries.
  • Checking for building regulation certificates, details of planning permission, and property guarantees.
  • Ensuring the seller is the property’s registered owner.
  • Checking for local taxes, such as parish fees.
  • Checking the land registry and local authority to ensure the property is as it should be.
  • Reviewing plans for the local area to see if any proposed developments are in the pipeline that might impact the property.
  • Taking care of paying the stamp duty and handling the transferral of title deeds.
  • Ensuring the buyer is who they say they are and receiving proof that they can afford the deposit.
  • Liaising with the mortgage provider to ensure that the money they are lending will be available on the day of completion.
  • Ensuring receipt of deposit so that contracts can be exchanged.
  • Informing the buyer that the sale is completed and that they now own the property.

Our Property Experts

Dorset is home to a multitude of properties, from detached houses to semi-detached and terraced properties, flats, bungalows, etc. There are properties of different sizes in different locations and properties of all ages. Location is crucial as you’ll need to know what’s nearby, such as schools, shops, public attractions, and other amenities.

While you could research each property and area carefully, it’s much easier to leave it to our property experts. Let us know your criterion, and we’ll scour all of Dorset to find properties that match the criteria. Perhaps you need something within easy commute of your workplace or near the school that your kids will be attending.

Maybe you don’t drive, so being a short distance from shops and other facilities would be helpful. Or perhaps you require something quieter, so wish to avoid busy roads.

We’ll whittle down your options and present you with suitable candidates. If none of these properties grabs your attention, we’ll inform you when we receive details of other properties that do. Plus, our financial advisors are on hand to help you decide on a budget that works for you, so you don’t overextend yourself.

Once you’ve found a property that you like the look of, just let us know. We’ll schedule an appointment for an accompanied viewing. You’ll meet the agent at the property, and they’ll walk you around the property, answering any questions you might have. If you’re happy with what you see and are ready to make an offer, our estate agents in Portland will assist with the negotiations.

They’ll present your offer to the owner and get back to you with their acceptance or counteroffer. Their involvement will help make the process go a lot smoother, Dorset customers, saving you unnecessary stress and hassle. Once a deal has been struck, you’ll be guided through the mortgage application process all the way to the exchange of contracts. At this point, you’ll receive the keys.
